Lily Vocaloid

Yosh! I must admit that I was not into Vocaloids at all until I checked out on this new 'diva'. Okay, she has been around some time ago but hey, I'm notorious for being outdated. This is one of her official songs which I first heard. Not bad although it's a bit too techno-ish.

There's a demo version where people like you and I stumbled across. Many people downloaded the 30 days trial and played around with her 'vocal'. You can try downloading here if you can read Jap >.<

Just like other vocaloids...it really depends on the users' skills and experience with the software actually. If the production is by a less experienced individual, it will probably sounded as bad as this where poor Lily gets horrible terrible vegetable comments:

XD I kind of agree that her 'voice' is pretty 'Japanesized'. It's difficult to make her pronounce English. So yeah, 'Ohh...caught in the bathroom ants!'. 
BUT if you know how to play around with the notes and pitch and all, she can actually sound really cool! Alteration to the spellings for her to 'pronounce' is also crucial to prevent things like 'bathroom ants'. According to some opinions, you may get better features to make her voice more 'real' using the full version. So yup, more efforts have to be given in utilizing her 'voice'. Ganbatte, Lily-chan!

Physically saying, I'm not too sure what is she wearing. The only thing I am sure was her booth. The mixture of yellow and black made her looked a bit bee-ish XP. Nevertheless, love her still with the blue eyes, chords and all. The original version released and the figurine actually looked different. The original looks pale orange in colour in comparison to the shocking yellow on the figurine. Hmmm.the poster I got from Animelo apparently doesn't show much of the 'orange'. See if you guys can find the original release pics~


Lily is known as genderbent vocaloid. According to a source, "Genderbent Vocaloids are Vocaloids with the gender switched. This is very common among American fandom. Usually Genderbent Vocaloids are actually Vocaloid songs pitch-changed to create a male or female song; they are rarely songs made with a different voice configuration."
